Hanoi Jane Encounter

I received an email asking me how I felt about posting about Hanoi Jane. I told her I would do a post about it in case anyone else was curious. She wondered why I " bothered" as she put it.

America has way too much apathy, way too much tolerance for traitors. They are not punished, they are even admired by some of the low life in our country. Remember the week that Gore was in Saudi Arabia with Clinton and others and sounded off on America. Committing treason as far as I am concerned. The same week Cheney had the shooting accident. We never heard the media about Gore, I only knew about it because of being online. But Cheney was bombarded on every network, every channel, every news and political talk show on TV. You would have thought he had been gunning for someone, tracking the person and then killing him.

It is like America is upside down or something.

During the Vietnam War it sickened me and angered me beyond words how I felt about Hanoi Jane, Donald Sutherland,Gregory Peck and others how they were traitors to not only America but our troops. I swore I would never let up on what they did, never stop telling the world just how vile they were and are, and how they should be punished.

One of the times I came back from Vietnam, some friends of mine, Vietnam Veterans that had just gotten back from Nam told me how they had driven their motorcycles up the coast of California and put the Hanoi Jane stickers in the urinals in the bathrooms at gas stations along the way. We all had a good laugh and I complimented them on what a great idea it was.

One of the trips back home Bob Hope and I were standing outside a building where we had just had a meeting to talk about a trip coming up and a man walked right up to Bob Hope and spit in his face. It landed on his collar bone. Bob Hope stood there and told the guy, " that's not enough nerve to enlist, you have to be a man." The guy ran off.

Year later, in the early 80's I was leaving the gym I went to and Hanoi Jane was standing outside talking to someone. I wondered why the heck she was there. This gym I went to was Gold's Gym in Venice, you know the bodybuilding Mecca gym. She had a workout place in Beverly Hills, called Jane Fonda's Workout.

I stood by the door of the gym till the person she was talking to walked away. Then I walked right up to her with a purpose in my steps. I am 5'11 and Hanoi Jane is 5'7". So I had 4 inches on her, I got as close as I could, so she could feel my breath on her. I stood as tall as I could, you know when you stand there and really stretch out your back, perfect posture etc.? Yep that is what I did, wishing right then that I was taller then 5'11 just this one time in my life.

Hanoi Jane:She looked up and asked," You're a tall girl, do you want something?"

Wild Thing: Yes, Jane I need to tell you something. I have a message for you from over 2,000,000 Americans that served in uniform in Vietnam during the Vietnam War.

Hanoi Jane: You have a lot of nerve!

Wild Thing: Yes I do, these 2 million have my six and that is my ass, my back in case you do not know. They are very pissed off at you. And so am I, so I have to let you know from them and myself that we don't think you are a traitor, we KNOW you are.
And from me to you I will never forgive you for what you did, for the actions you took and for the words you spoke. You will take those things to hell when you die. But not only that, you will take the responsibility of the deaths you caused, the beatings and treatment you caused our troops by the enemy with you as well. Every drop of blood, every bead of sweat, every pain in their limbs and bodies that you caused them to be tortured and maimed. Every broken heart, every lost loved one left behind.

Hanoi Jane: ( interrupting) you do have guts I will give you that. I am not embarrassed by what I did, nor sorry. I believed in what I did then and still do today. You are wrong and Americans were murderers. You are condoning their murder as I see it.

Wild Thing: No, but I would condone your being punished for treason. Have you ever heard of the Rosenberg's? They were executed in 1938 for treason. Am I getting warm here in you knowing how I think you should be punished?

Hanoi Jane: she nodded and stayed silent

Wild Thing: Good then I will just end this conversation with this. You use this country, you use our military Jane. You use the freedoms that you have as if it cost nothing. You and your ilk are not why this is the land of the free. You and your ilk are not why our military and all the way back to our forefathers went through what they did to make sure we have the greatest Nation in the world. We were not defeated in the Vietnam War Jane, our troops won that war. It was our politicians, the lying media, and the communists in our country that lost the war, the cowards and the enemy of America that walk our streets like you.
You will never understand, I know this. This was a meeting in time that had to be,not for you, but for my Vietnam Veterans, and for me to tell you just what I think of you.
The courage, determination, camaraderie, selflessness they own and you never will. They are America's heroes something you will never understand. I despise you Jane you are not worth one gasp of air that you breath. I hope we never run into each other again. But these things needed to be said to your face, up close and personal.

After this I went home, I was shaking a little not because of meeting her but because I was so angry. Nick said to write it down as best I could so I would not forget what I said but also what she said. So I did and saved it.

Having a blog is also an excellent way of keeping track of things happening in the world. News and information of all kinds of things. Anything I post about Hanoi Jane will always be listed in my sidebar under Traitors To America.

There are also some pages at my personal website that mention Hanoi Jane, so Melinda maybe you would like to check them out as well. Read the posts here on this blog too, posts made by Veterans that walk the walk.Men, real men every one of them, and each one that you should feel honored to be in their presence. If you do then you will never again say or think why bother.

Quite a life you've had, WT. Thanks, for things too numerous to count.

Posted by: Rhod at March 16, 2006 06:56 PM

Hi Rhod, it is weird how some people, not many but some. Instead of posting they send and email. hahaha Usually it is someone telling me off for my telling about and hating terrorists or something from one of the lefties. I think Melinda sent an email out of just not understanding it.

Thank you for your kindness Rhod.

You went to Vietnam with Bob Hope? I’ve seen on your web page you knew some famous people but, you went to Vietnam with Bob Hope. I am truly honored to know you through this Blog and am humbled by what you did. Thank You.

Posted by: BobF at March 16, 2006 08:22 PM

Bob I am no one special,it is just my passion for our military and our Veterans that I will never let go of no matter what.

I am honored to know you Bob and I thank you for serving our country.

Aren't ya glad Wild Thing that you are loved and respected by veterans, whereas Hanoi Jane only has hollygoofywood, leftists college professors, and, and, hmmm, nobody else.

And do you think for a second that the Vietnamese communists have one iota of respect for her! Hell no, I bet they think of her as a useful idiot, now no longer needed.

Posted by: TomR at March 17, 2006 12:18 AM

I bet your right Tom, I bet they didn't even like her then, they just used her and she is too stupid and too much of a communist to realize that.

Thanks for commmenting and I am sooooo blessed to have so many wonderful Veteran friends. I love you all so much! ((hug))

God Wild Thing
I love you If I was not already married to a fabulous woman I would marry up with you. Can you make gravy and biscuits to. You got to tell Hanoi Jane off. You are my hero.

Posted by: Jack Hamilton at March 17, 2006 07:31 AM

giggle, hmmmm gravey and biscuits yes I know how to cook.

The neat thing is you have a fabulous wife and I have a fabulous husband I love ~ LOVE ~ and that we are all happy and in love with our mates. Life is grand. And we are blessed big time.


Posted by: Wild Thing at March 17, 2006 10:25 AM

Chissie, you are one terrrrrrriiiffic lady. Wish I could have been there with you and Jane. I have a couple of things I'd like to say to her as well. Way to go kiddo!

Posted by: Don Blankenship at March 17, 2006 11:53 AM

OMG!!! That's fabulous WT. Thanks for jumping in and sticking up for us. Fonda is one half of a team of traitors that are still running free and breathing air that real Americans died for, the other one lives in Massachussetts.
Every time I think of that bitch or hear her name I recall the nightly NVA bullhorns taunting us along the DMZ and mourn for every dead and wounded American in that war. I wonder what Colonel Maggie would have done if given the chance to take Hanoi Jane along on one of her field trips. Dark thoughts indeed!!! As stated previously, you are my hero. Happy St. Patricks Day WT.

Posted by: Jack at March 17, 2006 12:19 PM

You know Chrissie there is no statute of limitations on treason or sedition.I wonder why she was not prosecuted then and if not then why not now. Why cant some interprising federal atty prosecute this heffer. Also did you ever hear anything about the falling out between Jimmy Stewart and Henery Fonda over Jane?

Posted by: Jack Hamilton at March 17, 2006 03:27 PM

I am stunned, you can make biscuits and gravy? LOL

Girl, you are my hero. The men and women of our armed forces defend this country because of their love for it and their love for people they have never met and probably never will. People like you make living in this country a blessing from God.

I am honored and humbeled to know you. If you ever need more back up just call. I know you can handle Hanoi Jane but I got your back just in case...

Hi Don thank you, I wish you had been there with me and saying things to her too.

Posted by: Wild Thing at March 17, 2006 10:47 PM

Hi Jack, you are so right, Colonel Maggie oh wow I can just imagine what she would have said to Hanoi Jane. It would have been fantastic.


Thank you so much!

Posted by: Wild Thing at March 17, 2006 10:49 PM

Jack (Hamilton) you just reminded me, yes there was some kind of big argument between Jimmy Stewart and Henry Fonda because of Jane Fonda. You are right, not sure when it was but it did happen.

Posted by: Wild Thing at March 17, 2006 10:55 PM

HI BIG DOG, thank you,sooo funny yep I sure do know how to make them and other things too. The only thing I am not good with are cakes. I swear I can never get the two layers to lay right and too many times the top one slides slightly off.lmao Nick said I use too much frosting, but that is my favorite part. hahaaha

Thank you for the back up I appreciate it.

Thanks for posting your encounter with Hanoi Jane. She's fortunate it wasn't me because I'd have bitch slapped her silly. I loathe that woman and everything she stands for. By the way, do you have a good recipe for SOS?

Posted by: cuchieddie at March 18, 2006 10:59 AM

Hi Carl, so good to see you. I thank you for all you did. I wish you could have been there too. That would have been great.
